11:28pm
and making myself a name out here. being sorry rounded by the type of player on the defense and behind us and you're supposed to cure everywhere. do your job and be, you know, get the job done. what he has going for him is his ability to apply all three linebacker positions, meaning despite the lack of hoopla surrounding this year's 55, he's probably a better fit for the redskins defense than taylor was. >> he stepped up in the game and had a presence making some plays, being there in coverage. being there on the line of scrimmage and in his gap and he helped us on special teams. so, as he continues to improve, you know, he's going to make a spot for himself. i pride myself in learning all three and you never know, you know -- making it more valuable to the team and playing the position and just, you know -- it would be easier. >> reporter: right now, thomas is listed as the backup and the
11:29pm
weak side lined backup, meaning he's one play away from being in a position to let everyone remember his name. anthony amy, fox 5 sport. >> thank you very much, of course, the redskins next saturday looking to improve. i have to improve after what i did thursday night against the ravens, they will welcome the world championship winning pittsburgh steelers on saturday. many thanks to my producer travis thomas and amy. tomorrow, dave feldman is back in the hot seat for another rousing edition of geico sports extra. good night, everyone. see you soon.
